democrats are not in great shape either. we'll tell you much more, coming up. >> meanwhile, obama care exchanges, the health care exchanges now in day 11. the system has not gotten much better. we'll investigate exactly what went wrong and how much money was spent on the system that hasn't worked all that well. what are the problems causing all of this? >> up first, good meeting. the white house powwow may have produced the first real signs of progress towards ending the budget impasse and averting a government default. brianna keilar following developments for us. brianna, is there a sense that the party had to say there was progress or truly green chutes of hope? >> reporter: there's both. that's what the truth is. there is progress. we heard from sources in this meeting yesterday between house republicans and president obama that house speaker john boehner made that point, that they
needed to come out with signs of progress or certainly the markets were going to be upset. what we have now is progress on the debt ceiling. will the government re-open? that is murky as talks continue today. an encouraging sign after house republicans met with president obama at the white house. >> i would characterize this as probably the most constructive. >> reporter: and pledged to keep the talks going. >> we have more discussions. we'll come back to have more discussions. >> reporter: on the table, a compromise that would increase the debt ceiling for six weeks. the white house said the president looks forward to making continued progress with members on both sides of the aisle. but the government shutdown is still up in the air. president obama and congressional democrats insist the government re-open as part of a deal. republicans want concessions from the president to make that happen. >> republicans are pretty clear earlier today. they want to negotiate for you.
>> not going to happen. >> reporter: even as they were meeting, more signs the republican strategy is hurting them in the public's eye. in a new nbc/"wall street journal" poll, 53% of americans now blame republicans for the shutdown. 31% blaming the president. only 24% have a favorable opinion of republicans. 21% have a favorable view of the tea party. both numbers at an all-time low. and governors in states where national park closures are hurting tourism are starting to get fed up. >> come on down to southern utah. the parks are open. >> reporter: utah brokered a deal to fully fund personnel and re-open its parks. colorado, arizona and south dakota may follow suit. on "wall street journal," the dow soared to its biggest one-day gain for the year. hungry for good news just one week before the u.s. is set to hit the debt ceiling. a six-week debt ceiling deal would take us to november 22nd,
just as holiday shopping season gets under way. >> the president said the other day if they were to send them a clean debt ceiling extension, no partisan strings attached, he would sign it. >> reporter: a fascinating glimpse into that room where president obama met with house republicans. it was a key moment multiple sources inside the room tell us between president obama and paul ryan, the former vice presidential candidate. after about an hour of going back and forth, really making no progress on how to re-open the government, paul ryan sort of stepped up and told president obama that he needs to deal with republicans and find a way to work together, that republicans are not going away. multiple sources say at that point president obama said, you know what, it's time to break, how about you go back, figure out a way to re-open the government, what conditions you need. so obviously not agreeing to conditions, michaela, on how to re-open the government but the president stressing he's open to some ideas. he wants them to keep talking
and come back to him. >> a key pivotal moment there. interesting to see what changed the tide. just a hint of a debt limit deal sent the markets soaring on thursday. closing more than 300 points up. even if they get a fix done, this is sure to raise it's ugly head again. christine romans, you think this is a concern. >> i'm killing this the kick the can stock market rally. now someone has to kick the can before you see real confidence take hold again in the stock market. congress has so much room to screw up your retirement here and that's why they're so concerned this morning that they haven't actually finished it. stocks are up double digits this year. if they can do a deal and have a good deal and spend some time talking about deficit reduction and getting budgetary restraint in, that would be good for your
money, job creation and stock market. >> people are sitting at home, my 401(k), my stocks, what do i do? is there anything they can do in advance. >> a lost of people got nervous and started to sell. look what happened? they sold and the stock market went up. you have to have a stronger term strategy. a lot of the people i trust say take a break, make sure you have the right mix of stocks, bonds and cash. remember, that there's a lot of room here for them to really mess it up. it's a kick the can rally, now they have to kick the can and actually solve these problems that led to this in the first place. the thing i'm worried about is confidence, consumer confidence heading into the holidays. >> we know how that affects everything. >> washington needs to step it up, worry about jobs, debt and deficits and start to be real leaders. that will be good for everyone's money. >> we'll try and walk people through this as this goes on. christine romans, thank you.
we appreciate it. breaking news, surprise over the winner of this year's nobel peace prize. it goes to the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons. it did not go to pakistani teenager malala yousafzai. that was a surprise. fred, how big a surprise is this? >> reporter: it's a gigantic surprise. there were people around who were absolutely sure that malala was going to get it, especially the media attention she's been getting the past couple of days. nevertheless, people say the opcw is a worthy winner because of also the fact they've been doing so much work in syria where they spearheaded that investigation into the chemical weapons use that happened in late august. but the nobel committee said that the reason why they got the prize this year was specifically not for the work in syria this year but for trying to get rid of chemical weapons in the world over the past couple of decades.
of course it's helping both the u.s. and russia get rid of their chemical weapons. also helped libya to get rid of its chemical weapons when moammar gadhafi was still there power. i want to tell you, the nobel committee is trying to reach the opcw. apparently they can't get through to them, to tell them they won the award. >> two days in a row. people are busy doing the work that won them the award. we'll talk more about this with christiane amanpour later this hour. stick with us for that. a lot of news. for that we go to mr. john berman. >> when you have caller i.d. and it says nobel prides committee, you pick up. years before he leaked thousands of classified documents, a warning about nsa leaker edward snowden apparently slipped through the cracks. in 2009 when he worked at the cia in geneva, a supervisor wrote he suspected that snowden
was trying to break into classified computer files. the first indictment thursday in the new york road clash between a biker and suv driver, police have not released the charges of 35-year-old robert sims. meantime, another biker is expected in court this morning. a chartered bus carrying dozens of sorority members from the university of delaware collided with a truck thursday night. the news journal reports the students are members of phi sigma sigma. 37 people were taken to a hospital. none of the injuries is believed to be life-threatening. the biological father of a cherokee girl once known as baby veronica, dropping his fight for custody rights. they say all proceedings regarding veronica within the oklahoma and cherokee court systems have been dropped. in return they have asked veronica's adoptive parents to
drop a complaint against brown of custodial interference. obviously what we're hoping there is both sets of parents can reach some kind of agreement for the benefit of this young girl. >> sad but also, this is a good sign of what may be to come. they're getting the legalities behind them, focusing on the kid, hopefully they find a way to put love around the child. >> john berman, great to have you with us. >> great to be here. >> we're evening it out here, indra, you and i against the boys. football during the commercial break. >> i'll take it. >> there will be no football for me. >> yesterday we were watching a system in front of us. >> it's your new best friend for a reason. >> that's an it. >> by it we'll be politically correct here is still here. okay? we're talking about rain pretty much anywhere from pennsylvania, kind of now moving out of virginia. not necessarily heavy rain at
any point in time but it's band after band as the low tens to hug the coastline. temperaturewise you'll start to see temperatures rebound a little bit. at least the overnight feels better. a few days ago we had frost and freeze warnings. the upside, more clouds and more 50s in the morning hours. more comfortable as you're waking up. the reason it's hanging on, we had a blocking high, this low was trying to get out of here but it can't. this guy will not let it move. the dome of high pressure has to weaken in order for the storm to go away. we'll start to see that happen on sunday. each day we see the rain taper off a little bit more. as far as amounts, 1 to 2 inches primarily in the mid-atlantic. hot spots look to be around jersey and maryland. there you can see as much as 3 inches. over three days. not necessarily heavy. temperaturewise, you'll see the temperatures rebound into maybe the mid-atlantic and kind of cool off there into new england over the next several days. a little bit of variance. otherwise, generally mild. where temperatures are still
above normal, that's the middle of the country, well above normal there. cool air still right next to it. we have a system exiting out of the rockies. remember the blizzard in south dakota? plenty of snow out there. they're talking about a threat for severe weather, the potential for all of that snow to melt under heavy thunderstorms. could be a flooding concern for them. >> we'll take a break on "new day." when we come back, was it really a suicide? wait until you hear what's in a new report about the final hours of cleveland kidnaper ariel castro. >> bizarre circumstances coming out of that report. the obama care website, still has glitches. were warnings ignored before the big debut? we'll discuss that, coming up. vo: irresponsible.
vo: reckless. rep. blackburn: people are probably going to realize... they can live with a lot less government. vo: destructive. rep. bachmann: this is about the happiest i've seen members in a long time. vo: the government shutdown is hurting veterans, seniors, and our kids. now tea party republicans are threatening... an economic shutdown. refusing to pay our nation's bills. endangering american jobs. tell them to stand up to the tea party. enough already!
welcome back to "new day." an ohio coroner is making a surprising suggestion about the death of ariel castro. this new report reveals the possibility that his death may have been an accident. looking more at this for us this morning is cnn's pamela brown. this is an interesting twist of events. >> reporter: it certainly is. many of us were surprised to learn that cleveland kidnaper ariel castro was found hanged in his prison cell. now we're learning from a recent report from the ohio department of corrections, the possibility that his death may have been an accident due to risky sexual behavior. the coroner's office is maintaining this morning he committed suicide. new questions have emerge in the hanging death of ariel castro, the coroner says the cause of death is suicide. but a brand new report from the ohio department of corrections considers the possibility of a
drastically different cause. auto-erotic asphyxiation. the report says when castro was found his pants and underwear were pulled down to his ankles. >> it's a behavior when they engage in self-stimulation or intensify the experience by putting something around their neck to cut off the glad supply to their brain causing more of a euphoria. >> reporter: this morning, the coroner released a strongly worded statement saying i don't think anyone else should have an opinion on what the cause of death was. as a death investigator it is my job to determine cause and manner of death. looking at this report has not changed my mind. the cause is hanging, the manner is suicide. during his month in state prison, officials say castro was given more than one mental health evaluation and indicated no current suicidal thoughts or past attempts to hurt himself. as a result he was not placed on suicide watch. at a sentencing castro admitted to a sexual addiction. saying it was partly why he
kidnapped amanda berry, gina dejesus and michele knight and held them captive for a decade. >> i believe i am addicted to porn, to the point where it really makes me impulsive and i just don't realize that what i'm doing is wrong. >> reporter: there were false logs created to make it look like they did check on him every half hour. ohio state highway patrol says, we are aware of the information regarding the clothing and the way inmate castro was found. we continue to investigate this case as we have from the beginning, as a suicide. key point there, they made a point of saying suicide. >> right. at the end of the day, the women need to carry on with their
lives and heal and move on from this. online problems are marring the rollout of obama care. but now the glitches are stretching into day 11, some experts warn the goal of signing up millions before coverage begins could be in real jeopardy. what happens then? cnn's brian todd reports. >> reporter: since virtually the moment it came online, the obama care signup website has been beset with glitches, people not being able to logon, getting booted off. we pressed the administration's point man on all this, david simas. >> folks are working 24/7 to address and fix problems. people are going through and others aren't. it's not acceptable. which is why they are working around the clock with hardware and software. >> reporter: many argue you had many months to get this booted up and perfected. >> we went through a testing period and during the testing
period, to fix those things. with a site like this, of course there will be glitches. let's understand why there was the initial problem. we have 250,000 concurrent users at one time. just for perspective, medicare.gov has 5 million unique visitors. this in the first few days had 8.6 million unique visitors. >> how much did it cost to pay the contractor to set up this website? >> i'll refer you back to -- >> reporter: was it over $100 million. >> i refer you to them for the numbers. >> reporter: he haven't been able to get hard numbers. according to a budget report, they paid $90 million through august of this year. then there's the potential cybersecurity threat. mike rodgers says with all the personal information like your social security number, tax information and other data you'll have to put into this
health care database. >> it's a magnet for hackers, he says, what about the cybersecurity? >> built to the highest security standards. that's what this website was built upon. >> reporter: to all those frustrated by the website and are about to give up, keep on going back, call a help center and understand there's a six-month period to sign up. brian todd, cnn, washington. >> they'll have to get the glitches if they want people to come out in the numbers they are hoping them to. >> a red herring. it is a software issue. this is the how, the process. it's being used as a metaphor for whether obama care is a good law, conflating. >> conflating, a word we like to use. next up on "new day," one-on-one with the malala yousafzai. christiane amanpour sat down with this brave young woman. she'll join us this morning to talk all about their conversation. plus, trouble at the taj mahal. police in india going after miss universe because of an unauthorized photo shoot.
>> announcer: you're watching "new day" with chris cuomo, kate bolduan and michaela pereira. >> welcome back to "new day." it's friday, october -- i want to sound like james earl jones. nothing wrong with trying once in a while. >> i know. how did a young girl thwart an assassination attempt by the taliban. christiane amanpour gets inside the amazing story of malala yousafzai. >> she's a teenager and has had
a remarkable life already. i cannot wait to see what lies ahead for this young woman. how is it that peyton manning is making nfl history before he steps on the field for sunday's game against the jacksonville jags? we'll discuss that. >> the latest headlines, i'll bring you up to date on developments overnight in washington. finally, a hint of progress. a faint whiff of progress if you will. president obama meeting at the white house with a group of 20 top house republicans talking more than an hour and a half about a republican proposal to increase the debt ceiling for six weeks. the president is said to be pressing the republicans to end the partial government shutdown as well. t the nobel peace prize w awarded to a watchdog group, working to help destroy syria's stockpile of poison gas.
many thought malala yousafzai was going to become this year's nob nob nob nobel laureate. this woman was killed when her car slammed into a tree. jurors ruled the car's design did not contribute to that accident. the operator for west texas -- of the we have l west texas fertilizer plan the where a massive explosion killed 15 had serious safety violations. including unsafe storage of chemicals. this blast registered as a small earthquake. the company is facing more than $100,000 in federal fines. get this, classes at a georgia school are being canceled today on account of great weather. the head master at calvary
christian school in columbus says he's had to cancel classes for years because of bad weather and he wanted to do a positive reason to do it before he retires this year. the forecast for columbus, georgia today, 80 and sunny with a chance of awesome. that's awesome. that sounds great. >> a nice good act before he retires. >> very good. >> how about the time for the political gut check. ready for this? we've been talking about the president and the house republicans negotiating a debt limit deal. is there a light at the end of the tunnel and is that light the train? cnn chief national correspondent john king is here to break it all down. good morning, john. let's get right at the meeting. we understand that it was going just okay. then there was a major pivot point. what happened? >> let me put it this way. at least they're in the tunnel instead of in their bunkers, chris. what happened during this white house meeting there was what we had for a couple weeks now. people stating their positions with be not getting anywhere. and remember the republican vice
presidential nominee the last time around, paul ryan, said look we know you don't like our position or respect our position, but we're the republican majority, you're stuck with us for a while. at least through the next election season. the tone of the meeting changed and the president said, okay, i'm not going to negotiate until you re-open the government. go back to your members, find out what you need to do to get that part done and let's try to make progress. importantly, chris, they also at this meeting decided and this was the republicans who brought this up, let's walk out of here saying we're making progress for both the financial markets and i would call it the political markets, where the people start to have a bit of faith. >> coming out of the meeting did you have anybody saying to you, why did this take so long? feels like we could have done this weeks ago. doesn't seem like this dynamic was so special. >> i think everybody says that. it was interesting, dana bash interviewed pete sessions.
for the first time we were having this conversation. that's pathetic, i hate to say it. for the first time we're sitting with the president trying to build this respect. it's months and months and months overdue, not just about this crisis. they should have been going this from the moment the republicans got the gavel back. they're here now, let's hope they can make progress. >> there's a gaping credibility gap between the president and the republicans. tell us about that. >> the polling has a huge impact. if you look right there there's a 22-point spread for who's to blame. 66% of the american people blame republicans here. there's another -- in that same nbc/"wall street journal" poll, chris, favorable opinion of the republican party and the tea party at all-time lows. what does that polling do? it gives speaker boehner the right to turn to the tea party members, ladies and gentlemen, you want to cost us the next election? it's time we find an exit
strategy. >> in terms of impetus, there's something hidden in the poll. 60% of people say i'd get rid of all people in congress, including the democrats. they need to heed the people's will as well. no? >> they certainly do. if you're looking at this polling, people have less and less faith that this town con get anything done. as i always say, people think washington would screw up the free lunch, more and more so. the pessimism about washington, yes, the president has the upper hand politically when it comes to the shutdown and debt crisis. he has three plus years left of his second term. he has to build a relationship with the republicans, he has to build some faith with the american people that washington can get at least the basic business done. >> let's look for progress here. what's your best information about what will be on the table when the republicans come back? >> a couple of key things. number one, the republicans are polling their own members saying the president will talk to us about these debt issues, entitlement issues but first we have to re-open the government.
what conditions do we need to sell that in the house of representatives? that's a tough sell. some of the members are holing out over defunding obama care. as the houseworks on that, watch for today's meeting, chris, between the president and senate republicans. they're working on proposals, repealing that tax on medical devices, changing the income formula under which you become eligible for subsidies in obama care. the senate is working on more modest changes to obama care. >> i think we'll start hearing about the penalty payment for individual. that's going to wind up coming up. john king, thank you very much for the insight. have a great weekend, my friend. >> you do the same. ahead on "new day," peyton manning, will you be watching? what exactly is this mismatch making history? we'll tell you about that, coming up. amazon ceo, jeff bezos, his father, they're estranged. his father didn't know what happened with jeff bezos.
he didn't know. there's a new book exploring the surprising discovery. we'll tell you about it, coming up. >> fascinating story. >> right? [ male announcer ] at northrop grumman, we've always been on the forefront of innovation. when the world called for speed... ♪ ...when the world called for stealth... ♪ ...intelligence... endurance... affordability... adaptability... and when the world asked for the future. staying ahead in a constantly evolving world. that's the value of performance.
welcome back to "new day." let's take you around the world where prime minister ali zeidan is back to work. >> the prime minister, released unharmed from his kidnapping, the conclusion here, the united states far less likely to come in and arrest a main suspect in last year's benghazi attack on the consulate. why? because most people here think it was the u.s. arrest last weekend of al qaeda suspect abu anas al libi that triggered the prime minister's kidnapping. big muslim holiday coming. it feels calm. just across the sea, 200 marines ready to come in and support the embassy if that changes. back to you, michaela.
to miss universe. she's facing charges in india after an unauthorized fashion shoot at the taj mahal. >> reporter: miss universe is in trouble in india. police have filed a case against her following a fashion footwear shoot at the taj mahal. police say she did not have permission to shoot at taj which expressly prohibits any form of commercial photography. the implications of this police case against her aren't -- but one official told cnn i have to study the case and then decide what happens next. michaela, back to you. >> thank you so much. all right. sunday's coming. we love sports. we love when records are broken in sports. >> i know. >> this sunday one game in particular is breaking a record before it even begins. >> this is interesting. >> denver is an unprecedented 28-point favorite over the jacksonville jaguars. at the helm, pating manning. is he that good that he breaks
this record before it even starts? let's bring in someone who knows, robin lundberg, host of the robin lundberg show on espnews radio. >> thank you for having me. >> when we're talking about the spread, this isn't a bunch of people sitting around. talk about the science that goes into thinking about it. >> the house doesn't lose. you know that anytime you go to las vegas. if there's a bunch of money coming in on one team, it will adjust the spread accordingly. they're not in the business of losing these things. they spend their time, they set it and they generally win. even if you're a really expert gambler, you'll beat the spread 51%, 52% of the time. >> the broncos are really, really good and the jaguars are bad. >> this is not a historically good team. it's also a historically bad team. the jaguars, there's not a
redeeming quality about the jacksonville jaguars currently. on the other side, peyton manning is going to hurt his neck again looking up at the scoreboard with all the touchdown passes he's throwing. >> he was written off for a while, was he not? >> he had four neck surgeries, it was. anytime that happens, you'll be hesitant. he's 37 years old. >> elderly. >> but he gets it done. not only can he physically get it done, 'justs at the line of scrimmage, making all those sort of changes. he fooled the camera. he didn't tell his teammates he was going to run a naked bootleg. he was untouched going into the end zone. >> naked bootleg? come on. >> that's my favorite phrase. >> peyton manning, the broncos have been incredibly dominating. he's been dominating before, though, at the beginning of seasons with the indianapolis colts. they ran up some big records, undefeated until late in the season. there was a sense a lot of the time that he fired all his bullets early, maybe they would
have been better holding back. are they doing too much too soon here? >> here's my argument for peyton manning and why he might struggle relatively speaking in the playoffs. not only is he physically performing which you have to do under a high stress situation in the postseason against better teams but he's also doing the coaching thing. that's another variable that's added in. he's up at the line of scrimmage, throw the ball and figure out the coverages ever the other team. >> he's probably never been on a better team. everything about quarterbacks, you're good until somebody hits you. he's not getting hit. he has a great line, great pieces around him. it all comes down to this, do you think they'll cover the spread? >> it's impossible to answer. if you'll tell me i had to bet one way or the other, i had to say no. i can see the broncos going up 35-0. jacksonville gets a couple of scores. it's difficult to say. >> could a miracle at all happen here?
at all, at all? >> i don't think they allow you to bet on the moneyline, which is betting for the team that's the underdog to win outright. >> the jacksonville jaguars are not going to win -- >> you're one hit away in football. >> even with a backup quarterback they'll beat jacksonville. >> you think they cover the spread? >> i would not bet on it. >> what do you think? >> tweet us with the #newday. >> what does the weather tell us? cover the spread? >> i'll stick with the weather. we're talking about the storm that is still here. we're continuing to see rain around pennsylvania. now exiting out of virginia. hanging around maryland, all this pretty light is that it is lingering day after day. a lot of people saying why, why won't the storm go away? it's a dome of high pressure that we call a blocking high. it literally will not let the storm move.
we will see that happen but not until about sunday or so. until then, make friends, make peace with it. we'll see rain continuing throughout the day and even if through saturday. not necessarily heavy but since it's hanging for so long, 1 to 3 inches of rain possible. maybe around jersey, we can get higher amounts. maryland can see 3 inches. the rest of the country looks gorgeous in the middle of the country. temperatures are well above normal, cool air in the pacific northwest again. the system exiting out of the rockies. we want to watch the tail end of this. it will start to produce heavy rain, a good thing for texas. they need the rain, notice around houston they could see 3 to 5 inches of rain. want to see what the rest of the country looks like for columbus day? pretty nice almost everywhere except for where? where we do the short straw, new york city. rain, rain. and see it again, more rain. >> we'll get our umbrellas out. indra, thank you. >> 16-year-old education
crusader malala yousafzai, one year after she was shot by the taliban she's going to talk to our christiane amanpour. she'll join us live to unpack the story of this phenomenal young woman. lergies. try zyrtec-d®. powerful relief of nasal congestion and other allergy symptoms -- all in one pill. zyrtec-d®. at the pharmacy counter. and other allergy symptoms -- all in one pill. ido more with less with buless energy. hp is helping ups do just that.
soon, the world's most intelligent servers, designed by hp, will give ups over twice the performance, using forty percent less energy. multiply that across over a thousand locations, and they'll provide the same benefit to the environment as over 60,000 trees. that's a trend we can all get behind. look at this. how lucky am i? >> we're the lucky ones, chris. >> stop it. >> so lucky being here with you.
education, specifically girls education has been awarded by a top human rights prize. it was rumored she was a cont d contender for the nobel peace prize. all of this comes a year after malala was shot on her school bus by the taliban. sitting down with our chief instant correspondent christiane amanpour, hosting a town hall with malala in new york city last night. to be in her presence is a miracle in itself. >> it really is. who knew she would ab live this time last year. she spoke about what had happened to her. i haven't actually heard her speak about that publicly. i've heard her say a lot about her dreams, her passions. she said it so beautifully, they can try to kill me but they couldn't kill the mission which was about getting education for girls. let's listen to a little bit about what she said. >> the thing is, they can kill
me, they can only kill malala. but it does not mean they can kill my cause as well. my cause of education, my cause of peace and my cause of human rights. my cause of equality will still be surviving. >> it's almost hard to reckon with the fact she's 16 years old. >> i think she's a prodigy. she speaks like an adult yet she does have that child-like nature of this optimism, this hope, this idealism. a defiance based on what her father says is a refusal to live in slavery. he said it so eloquently last night. he's one of her biggest champions. even that is rare in pakistan. when a girl is born in their village in the valley, it's not cause for celebration. it's cause for grief. they celebrate when the boys are born. yet malala was different. and she, he said, was the pride
of the family. yes, they want to make education for girls. >> do you think they felt she was other from the time she was a little girl. >> i get that, especially the father. he is a rare bird, too, a free and progressive thinker in a place where you wouldn't necessarily think that was the case. he put all of that on to his daughter and you know what, the u.n., everybody knows that unless everybody gets an education, especially girls, no community will be healthy, no country will be healthy. they're living proof of the desire to get educated, to not be forced into an early marriage. she told me last night she's 16. one of her best friends she's already got two children. her life is practically over. >> a force of change as well, i'm wondering how she's reacting to all of this talk? we know there is rumor she might
have been a contender for the nobel peace prizeship she won a prestigious award for human rights efforts. how does she reckon with it all? >> she's incredibly modest. look, you must -- you know it all the time. our world is a celebrity culture. people find is very, very difficult to deal with the amount of attention put on them. this is what she said about the nobel situation. >> when i think of myself, i have a lot to do. i think that it's really -- i feel proud. i would walk for education, when i would have done something, feeling confident to tell people, yes, i have sent children to school. i'll be feeling proud! if i get the nobel peace prize i'd be saying, yeah, i deserve it somehow. i need to work a lot. i need to work a lot.
>> again, she's saying how much work she needs to do. she's not ready. >> there was a lot of people who thought she might do it, having gotten the prize in europe the day before. >> opcw, they were awarded the nobel prize and you have done a tremendous amount of work in covering syria. give us your reaction to that. >> anytime an organization works for peace and disarmament, it's a good thing. usually nobel is tweeting that opcw is in charge of disarming bashar al assad from chemical weapons. i think they've had a lot of questions about why didn't malala win. obviously anytime something like that is brought to prominence, it reinforces the fact that these are incredibly difficult jobs and they need to be done and some people are doing it. >> from what we can tell from
malala, it seems to me she would support this work of efforting peace in the region. >> she talks about being a girl, boy. >> can we talk more about it next hour? >> yes. >> we love that. we should point out, this weekend, christiane amanpour's interview with malala will be the focus of "the bravest girl in the world." it willing on sunday, 7:00 p.m. eastern. over to you, chris. >> a great story for everybody to hear. we'll take a break now on "new day." when we come back, they're finally talking. how the president and congress may be on the right track to avoid a debt ceiling disaster. plus the ceo of starbucks is taking his venti size anger over the shutdown to the people and he's talking to cnn. farmers presents: fifteen seconds of smart.
set your soul free. the fickle winds of fate blow more harshly in the world of football. the once mighty giants 0-6. >> are you relishing. >> nearly four years. absolutely. andy scholes joins us with the bleacher report. >> i'm a jets fan. i like that the giants are 0-6. the question is why are they 0-6? >> you know why they're 0-6, because eli manning is not playing like the eli manning of old. we always talk about how good of a season peyton manning is having right now, his brother eli is having pretty much the opposite of what peyton's been
doing. eli picked off in the giants first two drives. the second one, taken 48 yards the other way for a touchdown by tim jennings. eli finished with three interceptions. he has a league-leading 15 on season. bears beat the giants on "thursday night football." detroit and oakland, game five, verlander had a no-hitter through six. he would end up striking out ten in eight scoreless innings. tigers won 3-0. they advance. dodgers and cardinals play tonight, 8:30 eastern on tbs. here's an inspirational story of an arkansas cheerleader. patience beard. she not only does everything all the other cheerleaders do, guys,

crisis when the headless man is coming at you. where is the sound coming from if he's got no head? >> strong point. >> that's how you know it can't be real. >> which is what you're saying when the headless man is running towards you. it's like scooby doo happening in real life. we're now at the top of the hour. that means it is time for your top news. \s we've been trying to have conversations with our top colleagues. they don't want to talk. >> we take you inside the negotiations and find out how likely a deal really is. tall order. can the ceo of starbucks help end washington gridlock and
reach o restart the government? he talks to us about his mission. and the man who didn't know who was amazon ceo's jeff bezos' father until recently. will the two meet? your nape sta"new day" starts r. >> announcer: what you need to know -- >> we're seeing implementation of the dumbest ideas republicans ever put out. >> announcer: what you just have to see. ♪ >> announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo, kate bolduan and michaela pereira. >> good morning. welcome back to "new day." it's friday, october 11th, 7:00 in the east. kate bolduan is off today. michaela pereira and i are here with you. new this morning, the moment that made the meeting at the white house between obviously the president and house republicans. they sat down to talk about the
shutdown and the debt ceiling. no deal yet but they're closer. we'll tell you why. meanwhi meanwhile, as if political gridlock wasn't bad enough, the nation's capital bracing for actual gridlock. listen to this. thousands of truckers descend on d.c. to snarl up traffic. they say they're protesting government corruption. will they accomplish anything other than traffic headaches? we'll show you video that's quite difficult to watch. it shows a blind man being savagely attacked on a philadelphia street. even more disturbing, no one tries to rush to his aid. no one tries to help him. police are turning to the public now. >> terrible. let's talk about what's going on down in washington, d.c. it's something. it's something. democrats, republicans and the president talking to each other. i know this should happen all the time but it hasn't, so it's progress. while there's no deal officially on the table, a short-term fix
at least to the debt limit crisis could get done as soon as today. brianna keilar on the case at the white house this morning. good morning. >> reporter: that's exactly it. progress on the debt ceiling but whether the government will re-open, that's murky this morning as talks continue at the staff level. an encouraging sign after house republicans met with president obama at the white house. >> i would characterize this as probably the most constructive. >> reporter: and pledged to keep the talks going. >> we have more discussions. we'll come back to have more discussions. >> reporter: on the table, a compromise that would increase the debt ceiling for six weeks. the white house said the president looks forward to making continued progress with members on both sides of the aisle. but the government shutdown is still up in the air. president obama and congressional democrats insist the government re-open as part of a deal. republicans want concessions from the president to make that happen.
>> republicans are pretty clear earlier today. they want to negotiate for you. >> not going to happen. >> reporter: even as they were meeting, more signs the republican strategy is hurting them in the public's eye. in a new nbc/"wall street journal" poll, 53% of americans now blame republicans for the shutdown. 31% blaming the president. only 24% have a favorable opinion of republicans. 21% have a favorable view of the tea party. both numbers at an all-time low. and governors in states where national park closures are hurting tourism are starting to get fed up. >> come on down to southern utah. the parks are open. >> reporter: utah brokered a deal with the department of the interior to fully fund park service personnel and re-open its parks. colorado, arizona and south dakota may follow suit. on wall street, the dow soared to its biggest one-day gain for the year. hungry for good news just one week before the u.s. is set to hit the debt ceiling.
a six-week debt ceiling deal would take us to november 22nd, just as holiday shopping season gets under way. >> the president said the other day if they were to send them a clean debt ceiling extension, no partisan strings attached, he would sign it. >> reporter: a key moment in this meeting yesterday between the president and house republicans, according to multiple sources who were in the room, was when, after about an hour of kind of going back and forth on how to get past this shutdown, how to get the government back up and running, paul ryan, the former vice presidential nominee said, implored, really the president to deal with republicans. he said they need to find a way to work together. he said republicans are not going away and folks in the room at this point, michaela, said that is when president obama sort of broke a little bit and said, okay, let's take a moment, let's take a break. you guys go back to the drawing table, come up with some ideas for what it would take to re-open the government. i think republicans credit that moment as really -- the
president being more open to republican ideas on the shutdown. >> it's interesting to see what some of the moments are like inside the ongoing discussions. >> sure. >> thank you so much for that. meanwhi meanwhile, this is the big question. let's bring in our business correspondent christine romans. and chief political correspondent candy crowley. candy, we'll start with you. let's talk about the fact that there are these things beginning on behind the scenes what are you hearing about some of these discussions? >> interestingly what i'm hearing this morning from a top republican aide and a top democratic aide is caution, saying, okay, yes, there was talk. everybody agreed not to say bad things about each other. but there was not bargaining per se. it was tell me what you want
from the president, what brianna just talked about. and sort of saying, let's not get ahead of ourselves here. there are lots of moving parts. the speaker has to deal with his caucus over on the senate side. senate republicans are putting together something that they think should open up the government which has a lot of things in it. so there's many things going on but i'm also told, look, the debt ceiling for both sides, it should be a no brainer. neither one of these sides wants to be responsible for whatever may happen if the debt ceiling is not increased. so they see that as certainly hopeful, that there has been movement in the sense that the tone feels better, one of them told me. that people feel as though, yes, it is going to take both sides to get this done clearly. there's that kind of realization we think they all should have had a while ago. nonetheless, i am getting caution particularly on the
shutdown side of things. don't pretend it's going to be a big deal today. >> exactly. now, caution there but then let's turn to the markets and bring in christine romans here. best day in a long time, yesterday on just the idea that there was a possible deal. >> right. >> what do you take away with that? >> nobody on wall street will give them too much credit either. there's been pushing from the business community, look, this is a bad idea not to raise the debt ceiling. now you've had this kick the can rally. now they have to kick the can, they have to start doing something now. they'll be looking at every single little bit of caution and worrying that it means we'll have a slide back. they've got to get this resolved for job creation, get people back to work. make sure that stocks don't tumble. and you know, another quick point i would make, there's a lot of people wondering if the gop is still the reliable ally of business anymore. they're talking about a traditional shift and what it means in terms of business
support for republican candidates going forward. >> let's bring you back into the conversation, let's talk about this poll that shows voters are blaming republicans in pretty stark numbers, far more than the president. i think we have a poll we can bring up. 60% of voters in the same poll say they vote all of congress out of office. look at these numbers. i have to wonder, is this kind of damage being done to both sides? is this reversible? >> most damage done to politicians are reversible, particularly when you look at those polls, remember in some ways it's a lot like how people look at their doctors, they say doctors, they get paid too much money but they love their own doctor. remember, most of these people get returned year after year after year to congress. while as a whole people look at washington and say, whoa, the republicans are causing this, they're terrible. it sometimes doesn't -- it tells us overall that this is bad news for republicans which speaker boehner had said at the beginning of this, he warned his
caucus, we could lose the 2014 -- in 2014 we could lose our majority over this. we'll see if that pans out. on the other hand let's remember that obama care kicks in next year, if all goes as planned. if that could run afoul, that will be a huge problem for democrats. and the story line -- things are recoverable. it depends on what happens between now and november. >> like a football game, all it takes is one hit and things can change dramatically. candy will have more on the shutdown and the debt ceiling debate on "state of the union." and christine romans on "your money" saturday at 9:30 and :00 p.m. eastern and sundays at 3:00 eastern. breaking this morning, a nobel prize surprise. the peace prize being awarded this morning to the organization for the prohibition of chemical
weapons. this is an international group that's been working to clean up chemical weapons in syria. also all around the world. it is a terrific organization. but many people have thought the award would go to malala yousafzai, the pakistani teenager shot by the taliban for working to promote education for women. the opcw, says three sites linked to syria's chemical weapons program have been visited by international inspectors. the 27-member team is scrambling to destroy stockpiles and delivery systems as the civil war there rages on. there are 20 more sites left to visit. at some point the inspectors will have to cross into rebel-held territory. now to that biker attack in new york city. the first indictment handed down thursday in connection to beating of the suv drive he. so far, seven bikers in all are charged, one set to appear in court today. the grand jury will deliberate on the rest. the district attorney is expecting indictments in each case. the agriculture department is allowing three california
chicken plants linked to a salmonella outbreak to remain open for business. they say the foster farms facilities have made immediate and substantive changes to their slaughter and processing procedures and can continue to operate. inspectors will be monitoring the plan. they're blamed for making more than 270 people sick in 18 states. new jersey governor chris christie will file an emergency appeal after a judge refused to delay her order allowing same-sex marriages to go forward. if it fails, they must begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples on october 21st. the judge ruled it is unconstitutional to block same-sex women now that the federal government is giving couples legal benefits. >> he's in a pinch. he has to deal with popular opinions. >> he is opposed to gay marriage. >> complicated situation there. let's get to indra petersons. keeping track of the latest forecast. >> a rainstorm causing problems
out there. we can see the current radar shows where the rain is. we're still seeing it in pennsylvania, down through maryland. i wanted to show you since a lot of people are planning on traveling for the weekend where the delays are. take a look at the map across the country. we see one huge delay. just my luck, laguardia, 120 minutes. we are talking about a two-hour delay. what did i do that the only airport i'm going to is going to be delayed today. of course, high fault. a dome of high pressure blocking the storm from making its way out. the reason they're seeing the delays around laguardia is not only the rain but the strong winds. they're seeing 25, 30 mile-per-hour winds. that will cause some problems. the system will be lingering. we're talking about light rain. with that, even as much as 1 to 3 inches is possible around jersey, even in through maryland, the rest of the mid-atlantic, 1 to 2 edges. by sunday we start to see the system taper off and finally kick out if you're giving a hint
to be nice. where it is beautiful, middle of the country, still talking about warmer temperatures. starting to see the temperatures rebound in the northeast over the weekend. i think the biggest thing to watch will be the front making its way through texas by the end of the weekend. 2 to 3 inches, up to 5 inches around houston today. we are not the only ones getting rained out. we are the only ones delayed. >> you'll be phoning in from the airport all day to give us the updates. >> it develops moment by moment. >> thank you. let's take a quick break. coming up on "new day," truckers from around the country are descending upon the nation's capitol. they're not on a sight-seeing mission. they say they'll show d.c. what a shutdown is all about. ariel castro, did he commit suicide or was his death an accident? we'll have the disturbing new claims, coming up next.
welcome back to "new day." hope you're having a good morning. we've been telling you about the political gridlock in washington for weeks. now get ready for gridlock of the real kind. thousands of truckers headed to washington this morning with the goal of expressing their frustration at the government by literally tieing up traffic. cnn's joe johns is in north springfield, svirginia with the very latest. we're standing by overlooking the capital beltway to see what develops. organizers say it's not clear if they have the numbers to do
that. is it a big deal or a little deal? >> it's going to be from coast to coast the biggest traffic jam in history. >> reporter: today we'll find out whether ernest general lee's big plans to crowd the capitol beltway and other thoroughfares with thousands of trucks in a protest against the government lives up to the nationwide hype. >> we want 100 million people nationwide taking part in this and they're going to. >> reporter: the plans call for the truckers to hit the beltway around washington friday morning rush hour, tieing up three lanes of 495 circling the nation's capitol with big rigs traveling 55 miles an hour. they say they will keep up the protest through the weekend, obeying the laws and leaving a lane for emergency vehicles. so far, state police while beefing up their presence in the states along the beltway have been measured in their reaction. as long as the vehicles comply with virginia law, then the virginia state police will not
interfere with their activities. lee says it's a coincidence that the so-called trucker's ride for the constitution happens to coincide with the partial government shutdown. but the truckers list of grievances has everything to do with the government. starting with the president himself. >> if you did a background check on me, i did a video calling for him to resign or be impeached. i don't want to make this movement about it. the problem is bigger than that. it's not just president obama. it is the corruption in the house, the senate. >> reporter: organizers are asking truckers to engage in a general strike and refuse to haul freight over the weekend to show solidarity with the movement. right now, a lot of traffic out there, which is pretty normal for a friday morning on the beltway. the american trucking association has distanced itself from this protest. michaela? >> all right, joe. i'm sure motorists there in the area, some will be supportive but will probably be frustrated by the backup is causes.
an ohio coroner is new yorking down shocking new information about the death of ariel castro. he was found dead hanging inside his prison cell, his death had been deemed a suicide. now, a new report suggests a very different and a surprising scenario. cnn's pamela brown joins us with the latest. >> officials have already determined ariel castro's death in early september was self-inflicted but this new report released by the ohio department of corrections is raising the possibility that castro's death may have been an accident due to risky sexual behavior, a suggestion the coroner's office who performed castro's autopsy denies. new questions have emerge in the hanging death of ariel castro, the coroner says the cause of death is suicide. but a brand new report from the ohio department of corrections considers the possibility of a drastically different cause. auto-erotic asphyxiation. the report says when castro was found his pants and underwear
were pulled down to his ankles. >> auto-erotic asphyxiation is a behavior when individuals engage in self-stimulation or intensify the experience by putting something around their neck to cut off the blood supply to their brain causing more of a euphoria. >> reporter: this morning, the coroner released a strongly worded statement saying i don't think anyone else should have an opinion on what the cause of death was. as a death investigator it is my job to determine cause and manner of death. looking at this report has not changed my mind. the cause is hanging, the manner is suicide. during his month in state prison, officials say castro was given more than one mental health evaluation and indicated no current suicidal thoughts or past attempts to hurt himself. as a result he was not placed on suicide watch. at a sentencing castro admitted to a sexual addiction. saying it was partly why he kidnapped amanda berry, gina dejesus and michele knight and
held them captive for a decade. >> i believe i am addicted to porn, to the point where it really makes me impulsive and i just don't realize that what i'm doing is wrong. >> reporter: the probe also found two prison guards allegedly failed to routinely check on castro at staggered 30-minute intervals like they were supposed to and also made false logs to indicate they did. a statement has been released by the ohio state highway patrol, the agency currently investigating castro's death. it says, we are aware of the information regarding the clothing and the way inmate castro was found. we continue to investigate this case as we have from the beginning, as a suicide. >> pamela brown with the latest from cleveland. thank you very much for that. >> thank you. we'll take a break. when we come back, the ceo of starbucks is sending a steaming hot cup of outrage to the federal government. he wants you to join him.

starbucks ceo hourld schulward urging lawmakers to re-open the government and reach a budget deal. poppy harlow went one-on-one with mr. schultz. >> he wants three things, the government to re-open, pay our debt and sign a long-term budget plan by the end of the year. he says we're on a collision course with time and he's fed up. what do you think the consequences are if we don't reach a long-term debt ceiling deal? what does that mean? >> the consequences are dire, standing in the world, the fracturing of consumer confidence, the psyche of the american people, small and large businesses across the country will be significantly affected. no one will be immuned. and what's so perverse is, this is not something that has been invented. this is something that is self-induced. this is something that is just
political. we have to bury the hatchet in terms of our political differences, have civil discourse and let people get in a room and commit to themselves that they're not going to leave the room until they solve the problem for the american people. >> if a short-term debt ceiling deal is reached and the president signs it, does that do anything to move the needle on clarity for business, to make big moves, big investments and frankly confidence for the american people? does that accomplish anything? >> all this noise about a short-term deal, i think, for me, it's really fool's gold. it will not accomplish anything over the long term and any confidence that is -- that is provided into the american economy and to the american consumer and our standing in the world will come right back and be fractured again. >> you said i don't pretend both parties are equally to blame. what did you mean in writing that? >> i think, the way i view it, i think clearly the issues on the
republican side have created a level of dissatisfaction in which the president could not or was unwilling to meet them halfway. but, again, i'm not here to parse words about who's to blame and who's not. i think both parties need to come together today and solve this problem. >> back to comments you made in november 2012, right around the election you supported the president. you said, what i wanted from the president was an ability to work closely with republicans in congress to be able to get things done. do you think he is doing that right now? >> i think there's enough blame, poppy, to go around on both sides. i'm not here to place blame. i'm here for a solution. i'm trying to leverage the starbucks platform on behalf of the american people to extend their voices to washington, to congress, to speaker boehner and the president of the united states and say, listen to the
people. they deserve better than this. please solve their problems. >> we have to listen to what these business guys say. they know what they're saying about economics. what matters most from him is going to be his money. >> right. >> that's what the politicians are going to listen to the most. is he going to stop giving donations? >> he has. he called on all fellow ceos and americans to stop giving any money to any politician until they get their act together, get a long-term budget deal. every time i interview him, i ask, are you going to run? are you going to jump in the fray here? again, yesterday, when we did this interview late last night, he told me i have no intention of running. but i asked him why are you doing this right now? he said he's talked to congress members on both sides in the past 48 hours. he said it was clear to him they were in no way on track to get a
long-term deal on track by october 17th. he's hoping this makes a difference. i don't know if it will mack a difference. we're yelling at washington right now. this is what starbucks is saying we're going to do. money, he's saying don't give any to washington right now. >> poppy harlow, thank you. >> you're welcome. john berman with the headlines. no breakthrough exactly on the debt ceiling and the partial government shutdown. but president obama and house republicans do say they will keep talking. that that is progress. the president and top gop leaders met for 90 minutes at the white house on thursday and today, he's having senate republicans over. signs of this progress in the budget impasse have wall street jazzed. that is an economic term by the way. the dow soaring more than 300 points. breaking this morning, the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons has been awarded the 2013 nobel peace prize. inspectors from the group are currently in syria attempting to dismantle the assad regime's
chemical weapons stockpiles. they cited their extensive work over the decades to rid the world of chemical weapons. a loaded handgun taken inside a pennsylvania town hall brought a meeting to a sudden and scary stop. this happened during a tense hearing for a police chief that made profanity-laced videos of the second amendment. one of his supporters dropped the semiautomatic handgun on the floor. it didn't go off. the meeting was moved to a nearby courthouse where weapons are prohibited. astronaut scott carpenter has died. he was one of the original mercury 7 astronauts and the second american ever to orbit the earth. the head of nasa mourning the loss, calling carpenter a true pioneer. he died at the age of 88 from complications of a stroke. john glenn is the only living survivor of the original mercury 7. recognize him? that is paul mccartney.
sir paul mccartney. the former beetle performing a surprise lunch time concert right in the heart of the big apple. he announced the show on his twitter account an hour before his performance. mccartney played a few songs from his latest album which is called "new." >> how easy is it to keep something like that a secret. >> there has to be setup there. >> he's aging amazingly. >> yes. >> his voice is the same. great. >> hope for all old men like us. >> it felt intensely personal coming from the two of them, didn't it? >> thank you so much. we want to turn to a story that's really causing a whole lot of outrage. a horrific crime caught on tape in philadelphia, blind man brutally beaten in broad daylight. the video shows several bystanders witnessing the attack. now police want to know what caused it and here is the pivotal question, why no one stepped in to help. cnn's zoraida sambolin is here with more. i think it's shocking that
nobody thought to help this poor man. >> it is at the center of the story that is most shocking. philadelphia police identified a 29-year-old man. he's wanted for aggravated assault. why no one stepped in to save this helpless victim remains a mystery. the pictures are horrifying, a blind man seen here on police surveillance video being savagely beaten on a philadelphia street. police have now released pictures of a suspect, mustafa guyton. officers say he lived near the intersection where that beating took place. they say the 33-year-old victim was walking down the block when the suspect approaches him. though the camera panned away, you can see in the next shot, the suspect kicking the victim and stomping on him, injuring his face and head. police say after the brutal attack, the suspect picked up a backpack and walked away. police did not indicate any possible motive for the attack. even more shocking, is that it appears that three people walked
by, witnessed it, and seemingly did nothing. >> you know, it's despicable, really. >> the guy that does it walks away like nothing happened. it's kind of ridiculous. >> reporter: residents of the neighborhood were just as disgusted that this happened. >> it's really bad, especially people that can't defend themselves. the guy is blind. >> reporter: this is not the first case of bystander apathy. in queens, a good samaritan homeless man was fatally stabbed coming to a woman's aid and was ignored by pedestrians walking by. and in this surveillance video, a philadelphia transit officer struggled with a fair evader as multiple witnesses watched without calling police. >> people just might not want to get engaged because they think that the perpetrator may be carrying a gun. being a good samaritan these days is riskier than it used to be. >> when you see something like that, you want to jump in but is it the right thing to do for your own safety?
>> so the police are hoping that the release of the surveillance video and the photo of the suspect will help locate that suspect. police have also said the victim told them that he did not recognize his attacker's voice. they are searching for any information about the crime, about the suspect. >> they really believe it's random. >> absolutely they do. >> the big question is what would you do if you were in a situation like that? people were chiming in on twitter. what if that person had a gun, what would you do. >> you don't know until you've been there. obviously hope is somebody would have the courage to do it. >> strength in numbers. a few people. >> that's a very important point, michaela. you see three people in this particular video and they're watching and doing absolutely nothing. if they all would have ganged up on this person it would have had a different outcome. >> the truth is, this is what usually happens. we tried everything, good samaritan laws and how you protect people when they get involved. police say pick up your phone,
dial 911. that's what you nead to do. unfortunately, that isn't done very often either. >> you have a good weekend. thank you, zoraida. a weird mystery and it has another twist. you know who jeff bezos is, founder of amazon, estranged from his father. guess what his father knew about his son? you'll want to hear it. i almost gave it away. >> well done. way to hold back. these two men on the screen, president obama and congressional -- you see john boehner there. president obama and congressional republicans, we know they're communicating. could we see debt ceiling deal today? ♪ norfolk southern what's your function? ♪

found his father in arizona. >> he didn't even know if bezos was dead or alive. our guest brett larson, the host of "tech bytes" is here to provide insight. what a turn of events. and the fact that was a journalist that brought this to light. >> he went through a lot of steps to track this guy down. he knew this person existed, jeff's father, he went over to arizona, eliminated half the list. found him randomly through articles of unicycles. there was a new site where he found pictures of a guy on a unicycle. he went to glendale, arizona and found him. randomly, the news article that he found was hanging in the bike store. the guy had no idea this was his son. >> okay. hats off, good reporting. >> yes. >> i have a little bit of a gut feeling on this. was this right? was this the right thing to do?
they're estranged. >> yes. >> i know it's reporting. >> it's nobody else's business. >> that was my initial take. i was like leave well enough alone. this is not the time to step in. granted there's a book coming out about amazon, a biography, it's not necessarily authorized, though ironically it will be sold on amazon.com at a deep, deep discount. he did the research, found this guy and comes to the conclusion that this guy didn't know you existed. >> how happy or unhappy will jeff bezos be that this man has been identified? >> from what we know all along, he never did the search on his own. >> if he wanted to find him, he would have. >> right. >> that's the assumption. >> the adoptive father, clearly a bigger role. he initially invested in amazon, was supportive in his life all along. interestingly enough, his biological father and himself
have very much the same businessmen taillight. this bike shop is known for being customer service friendly. the bike shop has low prices, amazon has low prices. they're cut from the same cloth. the big question is are they going to meet each other? >> this is the thing where i want the cameras to pull back and let this happen on its own in his own time. as an adopted person myself, i'm intensely private about these kind of things. i'm happy to share my story. you would be forced into a situation before you're ready. that's not healthy. >> we don't know a lot about jeff's private life. unlike say steve jobs or bill gates, we knew a lot about steve's life, also someone who was adopted and also did not meet his father. >> both of them have that start in life. >> yes, captured in that same text, type and title. >> it will be interesting to to see what mr. jorgensen will do with the information. >> he just found out his son is
a billionaire. >> he hasn't had time to process the information. brett larson, have a great weekend. find technology stories to bring us. >> have a doughnut. >> have a doughnut. >> and he's having a doughnut. all right. next up on "new day," a final farewell to the late cory monteith. how the cast of "glee" honored their friend and star. malala, she's that big, that important. she kept standing up for girl's education even after being shot by the taliban. christiane amanpour brings us her extraordinary interview with this special young woman. anthony bourdain visiting sicily on "parts unknown." he learns the language of food and in sicily, food gets everything started. >> what do we have here? let's identify these products.
>> capicoala. >> prosciutto. >> panchetta. >> that looks good. >> this is local. this is ricotta. >> the bread? >> the bread is from the uncle. and they have salami and sausage. >> this cheese? >> and what do you call these? >> just on a pan. >> right. beautiful. mm-mm. >> that's good. >> the best moment of the day. >> indeed.
from an alcohol/heroin overdose. a.j. hammer is the host of "showbiz tonight." it is your "new day" debut. good to have you here. >> nice to be here thank you. >> we heard from some of our producers up late watching the show talking about the fact that they cried the entire time, really emotional. have you heard other fan reaction to the episode? >> there wasn't a dry eye in my house for sure and the fans have been reacting in that way as you'd expect. everybody unanimously agreed they handled this really, really tough subject matter obviously perfectly and as best as they could. it was gut wrenching, it was heart-wrenching, emotional throughout. there was some humor in it but what they accomplished and fans felt is fans felt included. we weren't at the funeral and looking at the prism from a fan myself i felt like i was a part of something and felt connected. if you'd watched this episode
last night, having never seen "glee" and never known about cory monteith or finn you felt involved. >> they just left that out there, i wonder if it was a missed opportunity for the legions of "glee" fans that maybe they missed a chance to snd accept send a message about drugs. >> it would be tough to work it into the plotline in the show because there was no context in finn's character. they made the decision instead of doing that let's honor him. there will be time for those kinds of things but they really did not address how finn, the character, died either. i'll show you how they didn't address it in the show if we could take a look at that. >> everyone wants to talk about how he died, too but who cares? one moment in his whole life. i care more about how he lived and anyone who has a problem with that should remember that he was my brother. >> for family, that is a constant struggle. this is an interesting discussion.
why? because the top player is the emotion of dealing with loss, a young audience, a sensitive subject for them because of how they deal with it, then you get into the addiction aspect. for the family that is right, so much focus of remember that person at their best. then you have for everybody else as a community and what you want to send as a message. the good thing is it's out there, wasn't hidden and that way there's something out there about it. >> i think they needed to do this for the fans to honor cory and that's what ryan murphy the creator of the show wanted to accomplish. i think he did all the way through. >> let's talk about behind the scenes, the cast we know is very tight knit, they worked together for several seasons, some of them teenagers themselves having grown up on the set. i can imagine it was difficult to come together and record that ensociety. >> liam michelle was also his real life girlfriend. when they were filming the
episode he's never seen a crew leaving the room sobbing and what they did, this was evident, they used the first takes of many of the performances we saw because they were so raw and so real and that's one of the reasons we felt so connected to it last night. >> anybody missing from the final episode? >> there were a few characters who weren't there, diane agram, played bree. >> they were boyfriend/girlfriend early on. >> i heard she wasn't going to be a part of it, there were ugly rumors going around what may have been going on behind the scenes and personality conflicts, the ones that i personally choose to believe are the fact there were scheduling conflicts and others with scheduling conflicts that couldn't be there. >>a >> a.j. hammer, a sad day but helps the fans at home feel so connected to the characters and shows, hopefully provide a little closure for them as well. >> i don't love the word closure when it comes to people dying but it feels right here.
it feels right. >> it was your "new day" debut, thank you for getting up really early. >> where's my doughnut? >> somewhere in somebody's hand, pry it away from them. >> we'll take a break here on "new day." when we come back, president obama wraps up his sit-down with lawmakers today, going to meet with senate republicans, have them over to the white house, there are signs a deal to avoid default may be close. lawmakers are trying to back us off, maybe it's an opportunity to get more done. the death of a georgia teenager found rolled up in a high school gym mat, the death was ruled an accident, the family of the young boy are not buying it. n swenson ordered shoes from us online but they didn't fit. customer's not happy, i'm not happy. sales go down, i'm not happy. merch comes back, i'm not happy. use ups. they make returns easy. unhappy customer becomes happy customer. then, repeat customer. easy returns, i'm happy. repeat customers, i'm happy.

radio star and howard stern's sidekick. she joins us live this morning talking about her life after her cancer diagnosis and what she credits with saving her life. she wants to help others and written a new book. we'll talk about that when she joins us. 11 days in and finally at least a hint of progress. democrats and republicans talking to one another. short term fix to the debt limit crisis could get done today. brianna keilar joins us live. president obama changed the dynamic at the meeting at the white house with house republicans. after an hour of going round and round on the shutdown, president obama wants it to end, republicans want to keep on going as they negotiate following an increase in the debt ceiling, apparently ryan implored the president to deal
with republicans and said they need to find a way together, find a way to work together. they're not going away and that is the moment where president obama said okay, let's take a break. republicans go and figure out what needs to be done so that you guys can reopen the government. an encouraging sign after house republicans met with president obama at the white house. >> i would characterize this as probably the most constructive. >> reporter: and pledged to keep the talks going. >> we'll have more discussion. we'll come back to have more discussion. >> reporter: on the table, a compromise that would increase the debt ceiling for six weeks. the white house said the president looks forward to making continued progress with members on both sides of the aisle, but the government shutdown is still up in the air. president obama and congressional democrats insist the government reopen as part of a deal. republicans want concessions from the president to make that happen. >> republicans are pretty clear earlier today they want to
negotiate for you. >> not going to happen. >> reporter: even as they were meeting more signs the republican strategy is hurting them in the public's eye. in a new nbc/"wall street journal" poll 53% of americans now blame republicans for the shutdown. 31% blaming the president, only 24% have a favorable opinion of republicans, 21% have a favorable view of the tea party. both numbers at an all-time low. >> come down southern utah, the parks are open. >> reporter: utah broke a deal with the park of the interior to fully fund park personnel and reopen its parks. colorado, arizona and south dakota may follow suit. on wall street -- [ bell ringing ] the dow soared to its biggest one-day gain of the year. six-week debt ceiling deal would take us to november 22nd, just
as holiday shopping season gets under way. >> the president said the other day that if they were to send them a clean debt ceiling extension, no partisan strings attached, he would sign it. >> reporter: and he did also sign one piece of republican pushed piecemeal legislation so reinstate the death benefits for families of soldiers killed in combat and training. >> brianna thank you very much. with the white house and house republicans at least talking, the obvious question how close are we really to a deal? congressman james lankford of oklahoma, chairman of the republican house committee was at the meeting with the president, joins us now. thank you for joining us. >> you bet, good morning, chris. >> we hear there's progress. this morning lawmakers are trying to back us off. did you come out of that meeting headed in the right direction? >> we are headed in the right direction. 10, 11 days ago now we said we'd like to have face-to-face negotiations, sit down, start
talking to the issues, the white house and the senate both said no, we refuse to sit down and talk yesterday for the first time we sat down and talked. i think we can get all this resolved if we can sit down face-to-face and start working this out. >> you got that part of it down but the big piece coming from the president's side is i'll talk to you but i'm not going to link obama care's defunding or any major change to us getting the government going again. is that now agreeable to your side of this discussion? >> what's interesting is ten days ago that was agreeable. ten days ago the house of representatives passed a measure that said here's what we're interested in, members of congress and the white house being treated exactly the same as every other american and interested in those if they make a mistake or error or don't want do it they could sign up for the exchanges or move forward so this notion we've been hard and difficult to work with and we
want total defund or nothing is not true. we've already passed something ten days ago that said that and that's what we want to sit down with the president about so we feel that's a fair thing as we protect businesses and we should protect individuals as well from finds f fines for the first year. >> putting the provisions in to any bill that reopens the government you're doing what the president said he wouldn't allow, restarting the government to doing something to obama care. right? >> we want to sit down and have that conversation. amazingly it took ten days to meet for the first time face to face. that to me is a breakdown of our system. we should do that immediately. >> look it's sad to everybody, that's why we want to make sure there's progress now that it's happened. ask this one more time, if you came out of that meeting and say there's progress, does that mean that the republicans are now
ready to present something to the president that restarts the government, avoids the debt ceiling problem but doesn't deal with obama care in that same bill. will you do that? >> i'm not going to get into the middle of any negotiations happening. we've been good about this, the white house is great saying stay out of the details until we talk through the different option, let's talk and walk through this process and see what we can't resolve. our goal is to try to get this resolved, i believe it's the white house's goal and the senate's goal. we've accomplished that, let's keep going. >> okay so now we get to how long this will take to end. what do you think about the timetab timetable? there are polls out now saying that republicans are taking much more of a beating than the president although there's plenty of blame to go around. >> plenty. >> is that pushing you guys to get this done sooner? >> i don't know that it's pushing it get it done sooner. three weeks ago is the same as we are now.
now that we're here we want to try to get this resolved. as far as how quickly it could be resolved it could take days, it could finish today depending how the negotiations go and how we interact with the senate. people will find out we're flexible in this, want to make some progress and move forward. we have other issues that have to be dealt with that are much larger, the country is facing huge debt in the days ahead. that has to be resolved. we also have constituents that are being hurt by obama care that are facing higher premiums that are their businesses cutting back, going from full time to part-time, they're real issues there that the white house can't ignore and say everything with obama care is going fine. your network has done a great job of covering the rollout of the websites and all of the problems that happened with the website in the last two weeks is a microcosm of what's happening in exchanges and insurance connections and hospitals. what is happening on the website is a very public view of what is happening all over america and multiple different aspects of the rollout. there are issues that have to be dealt with. >> you don't have to connect them to shutting down the
government. you don't have to connect them to playing with the full faith and credit of the united states government with the coming debt ceiling. do you regret that move? nobody has a problem debating obama care or finding better ways to have fiscal responsibility but you linked it to shutting down the government. now you shut it down, now you're playing with the debt ceiling all in the interest of these issues. do you regret making it this severe? >> here is the hardest part about this. for the past three years we passed over 40 different bills dealing with aspects in the affordable care act saying there are problems, issue action we anticipate things. we have 40 different bills we passed the senate would never take them up and the president would never talk about them. after three years of that constant we have to sit down and deal with this, it finally reaches this moment to say at some point we're serious. our constituents are being affected. while they raise up some constituents covered under the different plans that are covering those with preexisting
conditions, terrific. we're also raising folks that are being affected. >> people are unanimous saying don't punish us for your process. hopefully you find a forward real quick to get the government he will opened. thanks for joining us on "new day." good luck going forward. a lot of news this morning, we'll get over to john. secretary john kerry arrived in afghanistan for talks with hamid karzai in a security deal that would leave some u.s. forces in afghanistan beyond their scheduled exit at the end of 2014. the swedish consulate in benghazi, libya, badly damaged by a car bomb this morning. libyan and swedish officials say there were no casualties because the mission was closed and it appears the blast was triggered by a remote controlled device. several nearby homes also sustained damage, no one has claimed responsibility. new this morning, the nobel peace prize awarded to the

the battle for all pakistani young girls in certain parts of the country still remains. >> she and her family live in london. >> well her father and she living in birmingham where she was treated and basically saved. her mother and her two brothers are actually back in pakistan, the brothers were missing too much school and the mom had to take them back. >> what an incredible story. i loved watching the conversation between the two of you. thank you so much for joining us on "new day" to share that with us. >> great pleasure. >> this weekend watch more of this incredible interview with malala the bravest girl in the world with christiane will air this sunday. when we come back a return of the kitty cabinkiddy cabinets time on the debt ceiling congress. our congress could learn a thing or two. and robin quivers talking about the vegetables that saved

home. what was in the place of the organs? >> newspaper. >> reporter: newspaper? in a letter to the johnson's attorney the owner of harrington funeral home says he never received kendrick's organs. he writes in part "his internal organs were destroyed through a natural process and henceforth were discarded before the body was sent back to valdosta." another tragedy for a family forced to find a new way to celebrate a birthday. >> all that we can celebrate his birthday is push to try to get justice for kendrick. >> reporter: because of our investigation, the state of georgia is now investigating the funeral home and more about that objective one eyewitness to the death of kendrick johnson, the school district's attorneys say they do not have to release it because it's considered an academic record and under georgia law academic records are
exempt from open records requests. >> victor thank you for the reporting. let's bring in sunny hostin former federal prosecutor and of course cnn analyst. fair assessment of the situation? does it seem that something is certainly off? >> it does. when you look at it, apparently the body wasn't taken to the coroner's office for many, many hours, a coroner wasn't even notified for about six hours and then you have this investigation said it was positionals afixation. i have never seen a case with these facts be determined that it's positional asphyxiation and it's an accidental death. >> that means he got crushed by being in that tube, somehow he got into the tube and it crushed him. >> the facts don't make sense when you think about being rolled in a map leaning towards your shoe. it seems to me, chris, i've looked in a lot of cases as a prosecutor you try to determine what happened, this doesn't make sense. >> you're in a mat, somebody
puts new a mat. when we find them enveloped this way it's because that's how they were disposed of. >> it appears that way. when you look at the shoddy police work that occurs here that's what i think, it begs the question what really happened, why was the manner of death determined to be accidental when you have all of these questions. i think a first year investigator would have found differently. >> is this clumsy with a coverup what we're hearing about with the organs? the funeral home says doesn't make sense. if they say we didn't get the organs either that's one thing but they say they know how they were disposed of. somebody told them something. >> exactly. i mean it just doesn't make sense and again it begs the question, if you have this manner of death being accidental, but the investigation was done in a way that seems to be inappropriate, the organs were handled inappropriately, what happened? is it a coverup and i got to tell you the fact that the investigation was closed so
quickly again sort of makes my spidey sense tingle. i'm thinking is it a coverup? what really happened here? >> we're putting the energy and effort into this and thanks to victor blackwell and the whole team working on it. we don't want another case ignored for the wrong reasons. what is frustrating is what did happen? there's nothing in the known universe of motive, nobody was out to get him from what we understand so far, no grudge, there was no altercation, there's just this one document the school hasn't released yet. >> you also have the second autopsy that says this wasn't an accident, it was blunt force trauma. >> to his carotid artery. >> i think what the lawyer wants to do is get the manner of death changed from accidental to homicide. that in and of itself will reopen this investigation. >> yes. >> i think that is really the right place to go. this investigation needs to be reopened. >> have they developed anything yet for a theory of what
happened here or we're waiting to know and we don't believe what it is right now? >> exactly. they want the investigation reopened, they want the autopsy results to be changed from accidental to homicide and they want more answers. this family wants more answers and i've seen so many cases and covered so many cases and prosecuted so many cases. i'll tell you something is wrong here. it doesn't make sense. >> i trust your judgment. sunny hostin a lot of questions kept being asked. we're doing it on "new day." it will happen tonight as well, kendrick johnson's parents live on "ac360" at 8:00 p.m. on cnn. coming up next on "new day," mr. cuomo's opus, his kiddie cabinet. and she says vegetables saved her life, robin quivers is

♪ say what you wanna say it is the friday edition of "new day," glad you could join thus morning. let's give you a look at what the weather will be like for the weekend. indra, bad for good? >> depends. depends on what you like and it's improving in new york which matters to me so that is good. we went from two-hour delays to 29 minute delays at laguardia, and it will get better. philadelphia on the other hand, it depends, michaela, now 41-minute delays so their delays are increasing. all of this thanks to the storm we know is still out there. looking at rain around pennsylvania, kind of down it's not the rain, it is the wind making the trouble spots here. dome of high pressure is close to an area of low pressure with that, we also know we get strong winds, northeasterly winds are
gusting on the east coast, up to highs of 30 miles per hour causing the issues. the blocking high is blocking the low or storm from moving out of the area. that's the problem and the reason it's going to be lingering for the next several days. it gets better each day we'll see it decrease and a hint of rain taper down. one to three inches maryland and through jersey and everyone else in the mid-atlantic about an inch of rain. it's getting better most importantly. there you go. >> you like that. >> a lot. >> stick around for this, indra, you'll like this. when the government shutdown first happened we were trying to get perspective talking to a lot of you and i also went out and did the kiddie cabinet, a bunch of fourth graders at the immaculate conception school in queens. we wanted to show some of this was so simple even being a child you understood what was happening and you responded very well. we also talked to them about the debt ceiling which they saw as far more important. here is what the kiddie cabinet had to say. here's what's coming, the debt
ceiling. you know what a credit card, you know what a credit card is? >> yes. >> you have ten bucks and spend ten ten what? >> you have no money left. >> you run out of how much you have spending stops. >> yes. >> not in government. in government they have to keep paying so what they do is they raise the ceiling, they raise the roof on how much they can borrow to pay for things that matter, okay? if they don't raise the ceiling, what do you think is going to happen if that happens? onsthan? >> the government would be shut down for good forever? >> it would be a problem, right? if they don't raise the debt ceiling then they're not going to pay their bills. we're going to default. now what happens? yes? >> they're going to spread out the, how they're talking about, how they didn't pay the bills to everybody. >> that's right. they're going to tell everybody that the u.s. government didn't pay its bills. >> also if you don't pay your
bills, then everything's going to go up like for everything for your bills and you live on the street and you'll be wondering why didn't i pay my bills. >> congress has really one main job. you got to make sure there's enough money for all the different things and you fight over how much money for what you do. now, if you cannot agree two parties cannot agree, how do we solve it? jonathan? >> we could compromise and we could agree somehow that it will make us feel better and more calm. >> carl, what do you do if you're president and congress won't compromise? >> i would tell them to get along just because people are going to be losing your jobs and it's going to be your fault. >> what's the message to congress, nicole? >> like don't be a follower, don't follow people's bad decisions. do what you feel, what do you
feel is bad, then don't leave people to that bad situation. >> prabji? >> you should help the people who voted for you and had trust in you. >> what is the warning? what do you want them to remember down there young karl? >> remember that it's your fault and if people are getting hurt, think about it. >> jocelyn? >> i'd like to remind the government that if all six of us, and we're only fourth grader, and question figure out what they should do about it and they can't, they should be reminded to act like adults and work it out. >> jocelyn bringing it home. >> on one level you say don't talk to kids about this, they don't understand. the point is they do understand, that even kids are taught by adults, somehow we forget what you're supposed to do in a crisis, how you're supposed to work and we lose sight of it. that's a metaphor for what's happening. >> be your own individual, my favorite.
>> don't follow bad decisions and compromise. i love that fourth graders know that better than congress does. >> don't be a follower, just because people are making bad choices you don't have to make the same choice and how about karl pointing the blame. >> he is strong, i said karl for congress, i revised that i think that and say karl for president. can we do more kiddie cabinets? these are fantastic. >> we have to figure out how do we lose this? how do we lose what we know when we're 10? >> teenagers and go through puberty, is that what it is, the hormones that kick? ? >> it's science. >> not with that again. >> what do you think of the kiddie cabinet and what do you think of their ideas and what's going on about the latest of the deal process in d.c.? #newday, tweet us, let us know. >> people have been tweeting today, good to see. next up on "new day" what a treat for us live in studio the one, the only robin quivers here to tell us how vegetables and her co-host howard stern saved

robin quivers revealed details of her difficult struggle and battle with cancer. her doctors pronounced her cancer free several months ago and she credits eating vegetables with saving her life. she joins us live this morning, she has a new book and i love the title "the vegucation of robin." so good to see you. you look healthy. >> thank you, i feel great and it's great to feel great again because during that whole struggle you weren't feeling good every day all day. it was a lot of hard work and you know, recovery is tough. >> that's the part you sometimes forget. take us back a little bit. you talk about the fact that you were obviously taken aback by this. could you tell us how that came about. . i changed my diet in 2000 because i was having other health issues and i was tired of being sick and tired. i started an investigation and discovered there was something about the way i was eating and
the way i was feeling so i eventually became a vegan and changed my life. i went from a person who was in pain all the time, tired, letharg lethargic, only sleeping and working to a healthy, active person again. >> had to be the food? >> had to be the food. >> you eliminated anything else it could be? >> the only thing i changed. i changed the way i ate and i went from being a person who couldn't walk a block to a person who ran a marathon at the age of 58 opinion i don't think i could have run a marathon at 20. ufl i didn't know i had cancer. >> the diagnosis comes in the middle of your life changing lifestyle, change in your life. >> absolutely, at first i thought why did i do all those things because i got cancer anyway. it was supposed to protect me. we don't know why these things happen and where they come from and how long it was there so you got to get over that right away.
you don't know why you got it and there's no reason someone else gets it and you don't. there's no why did it happen to me. it just happens. in our day and age. at that point you have to figure out what to do about it. i realized all those things i had done to change my life helped me to survive this and to reach the level of being cancer free. >> you were really, really sick. i had a grapefruit sized tumor in my. >> it was so big it was leaning on my bladder and i could no longer pass water. that was the moment i found out it was about. >> they did surgery but your prognosis was what at the time? >> the at time i had no diagnosis even going into surgery. they said we're going to put in a scope and if we find that
you've got it everybr, we're going to close you up and bring you out. just hope for a long surgery and so i went to sleep not knowing what was going ohappen and then 12 hours later they were wheeling me out of surgery and i still didn't know what happened because the doctors had been operating for 12 hours, they went home and now i had to wait until the morning to discover what they had done and if i was okay. at that time they thought we had done a good job and gotten everything but there was metasthesis to lymph nodes and they said we're going to try to prolong your life by giving you some additional treatment. >> people when they become survivors when you decide i have it, i'm going to beat it, they always tell us i'm not enough, it becomes the people around you as well. >> absolutely. absolutely. >> what did it become for you? >> the first person i called just to get some advice was howard my long time cohort and
the moment he heard that i had a problem he said robin, what are we gonna do? it became a "we" project. >> wow. >> he was there for me at the end of every appointment, what did they say, what do you need? what are we gonna do? what do you need next? then after surgery, i was not capable of doing much for myself and i was hearing all kinds of dire things about my possible prognosis and i called him and he said, why are they saying these horrible things to you? we're going to get you the best doctors, the best swiss vis, the best advisers and he just went to work and he did everything for me. >> the "we" aspect of that is so powerful. >> yes. >> it feels so solitary. it is happening to you. >> absolutely. >> i want to talk about some of the things you put in the book that i think are interesting. you pushed the idea of eating fresher and greener, cooking food for yourself in today's busy days and with how expensive food can be for big families that's harder to do.
how do you help people get around that? >> i this i that we have come to believe that cooking has to be a long process, that you can't prepare meals when you have time off and then store them in the fridge so you have something fresh to just pop into the oven or whatever that it's already preprepared. we can do things to make food more convenient and cooking vegetables is really quick. it doesn't take a long time. >> true. >> the thing that i also push in the book is that every diet needs more vegetables. i'm not trying to advocate that anybody become vegan. what i do advocate is that you look at your situation, are things the way you want them to be? do you feel as good as you can? are you enjoying life the way that you should and getting out of it what you want? and if those things aren't happening for you, maybe you ought to look at what you're doing and what you're taking into your body, because we need nutrition. we need building blocks to build the best and strongest bodies
and i do believe it was because i was so strong that i got through this so well. >> now the good news is you're okay. >> i'm cancer free. i am cancer free. i eventually wound up with some doctors who did know what i had and they did have a protocol for it and that was the treatment i got and a couple of months ago i was declared cancer free. >> thank god. >> you bought yourself a little present? >> i alittle present, what did you hear? >> i heard you might have done something, you do anything special for yourself to celebrate? >> i bought a new house. that's a big present. >> i was being facetious. robin thank you for sharing your story and tips and what worked for you, so good to see you looking so well. >> thank you. it's a pleasure to be here. >> really a delight. >> the vegucation of robin. >> i love the title. speaking of heroes, robin became a hero for herself and howard became a hero for her we
